Ibuleve Gel provides fast and effective pain relief direct to the point of inflammation or discomfort by a simple application to the skin. It is available in 5% and 10% strengths depending on levels of pain and inflammation.

The gel is easily absorbed and directed to target the exact point of pain, which means that is acts quickly and effectively, as well as negating the risk of side effects which can be associated with taking painkilling tablets. 

The formula has been designed and tested by UK experts to ensure the active ingredient of ibuprofen penetrates the skin exactly where it is needed.

It is particularly useful in the treatment of backache, rheumatic and muscular pain, sprains and strains as well as common arthritic conditions.

Ibuleve Maximum Strength Gel 10% provides fast and effective pain relief to the point of inflammation or discomfort through skin application. It has been designed and tested by UK experts to ensure that the ibuprofen penetrates the skin to the exact area where it is needed. Ibuleve acts quickly and effectively and avoids the side effects that are associated with painkilling tablets. 

Ibuleve gels and spray contain the active ingredient ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). 

Ibuprofen blocks the action of cyclo-oxygenase (COX), an enzyme in the body that produces substances called prostaglandins which cause pain, swelling and inflammation. When ibuprofen is applied to the skin, prostaglandins production is stopped in the underlying tissues.

Less Ibuprofen is absorbed into the bloodstream when it is applied to the skin than when it is taken by mouth in tablet-form. Gels and sprays, therefore, are less likely to cause side effects. Absorption still occurs, however, particularly if you use large amounts of lotion on large areas of skin.

Pharmacist Tip

A professional or at-home massage done by you can also relieve aching muscles. Remember that the strokes should always be in the direction of your heart.

Non-Prescription Alternatives for the treatment of Pain are;

  • Ibuprofen
  • Paracetamol
  • Aspirin
  • Topical Treatments (Ibuprofen gel)
  • Rest the area

  • Gently massage the gel until it has been completely absorbed.
  • Re-apply as needed, up to three times each day or as you have been instructed by the doctor.

Unless you are also treating the hands, you should clean them after use. Avoid applying more than the recommended dosage.
